so you must not be new to the area? If you have found the critter, then I would say not. Good choice for livestock, however, they have less than satisfactory acclimation process for their new stock. Be sure you QT your livestock for a good few weeks before introducing them into your main tanks. If you have patience, much of my equipment I purchase through kensfishdotcom. It's decent shipping costs or even free if you spend a certain amount. You can load up on products at the same time!! Great customer service too. You should certainly avoid J and M. I worked there for about 9 months, they are locally owned and that is great, but I think the owner has lost interest in his fish dept. They are good for making deals though, he is a decent guy..
I wondered about the HC simply because it is challenging. You dove in head first! Just don't get discouraged...
